Berry Happy!

Well today's card comes with some very exciting news....I'm thrilled to bits, and highly honoured to say that I've joined the girls over at Aud Sentiments as a new DT member.   *TC now dancing around the room*

So today's card is my very 1st DT card...I think that deserves a toast, well yours may need to wait until after work, but hey I'm celebrating, & I've just broken up for my holiday too! ;)
For this challenge it's a nice and easy one...A project or card with any sentiment.
We're sponsored by DtsArt, they are giving the winner 2 single digital stamps.

I'm using their lovely Pari Berry Fairy. Isn't she gorgeous, I wish I had such lovely big eyes! lol.
I've coloured her with my ProMarkers, & added a bit of fairy dust (aka glitter!)
She's sat upon a gorgeous lush strawberry, one of my favourite fruits, and now I have the song Strawberry fields in my head!

The paper is what I recoloured some time ago when my mum wanted some red dotty paper. The Strawberries are Miss Mint's. The flowers are images cut out and layered. I've used Sizzix elegant texture plate for the background & the following dies - Marianne Design Creatables Ribbon Border, Joy Crafts floral flourishes and spellbinders nestabilities circles & scalloped circles. 
The sentiment has been printed out from my PC.

I don't know about you, but it's got me feeling in the mood for summer, and some tasty strawberries ;)

I'd like to enter the following challenges
Oldie but a goodie Challenge- Things with wings - 6months + Paper, texture plate, Ribbon die 
Top Tip Tuesday - Dig out the old - 6months + Paper, texture plate, Ribbon die
